When it comes to the treatment of sports injuries, the team at Cairnhill Physiotherapy think that sooner is always better than later. By doing nothing now, you run the risk of paying a big price in the future: limited mobility, ongoing pain, and an inability to recapture past form are just a few of the consequences you can expect. There’s no need to tough it out. That sort of attitude is old-fashioned and unhelpful. You have nothing to prove to us, or to anyone else, so stop avoiding your sports injury and let us start your treatment.
We want to treat your sports injury without delay because research shows that early intervention has many benefits. We can confirm this through our own experience. For example, it will allow us to alleviate your pain quicker with our proven physiotherapy techniques. Several other benefits will follow beyond just pain relief. We’ll be able to loosen or strengthen the injured region with individually prescribed exercises. Plus, early treatment means we’ll get you back into your sport sooner through faster healing rates. We may even be able to improve your performance when you do make a comeback, by detecting and correcting any biomechanical faults that might affect your technique, or make you more inclined to sports injuries.
Asking Cairnhill Physiotherapy to do something now is certainly better than not asking us at all. By ignoring your sports injuries and doing nothing, you’ll take much longer to heal and you’ll have to endure ongoing pain which will likely get worse with time. Joint stiffness or muscle weakness could also occur, and arthritis is increasingly likely in the years to come. You could also fail to reach the same heights in your chosen sport. All because you didn’t act when you had the opportunity to do so. It’s just not worth the risk.
At Cairnhill Physiotherapy, we have a very talented and experienced team. But we’re not miracle workers! Symptoms lasting longer than a few months can become harder to treat and resolve, even for the best physiotherapists. That’s why we really need to apply our skills and knowledge well before it gets to that stage. The sooner you get in touch with us to arrange treatment, the better your sporting life will be, not to mention your general wellbeing. So, don’t ignore those sports injuries and don’t try to tough it out – contact our team today.
